F1 Star Painted in His Own Oil

Hamilton_Oil_01

The above portrait of 2008 F1 champion Lewis Hamilton is due to make its first public unveiling at a VIP event at the British Grand Prix, an event the British-born Hamilton won last year. What makes it particularly notable is that the artist, David Macaluso used the race-oil from Hamilton’s championship-winning McLaren as his supplies. The portrait, paid for by Hamilton’s sponsor, ExxonMobil is not the first that Macaluso has done using motor oil, portraying President Obama in a similar style painting as well.

When explaining his choice of materials, Macaluso said (through an ExxonMobil press release) that,

Painting with the Mobil 1 used motor oil offered a wide range of tones and was obviously a very refined product from its texture. It was extremely smooth and very particle-rich, with all the engine dirt in perpetual suspension, making for a great painting medium.

Hamilton himself likes the painting saying he was “very impressed with the oil painting.”

Jessiqa Changes the Pace of the Race

As race organizers prepared for an F1 race in Monaco, team representatives requested that they remove an ad that was along the course because it was too distracting for the drivers. The ad, for Martini liquers, features Californian model, 29 year old Jessiqa Pace, and the ad apparently was too steamy for the drivers to handle.

Scottish former driver David Coulthard said: “The drivers have asked for the poster to be taken down because it’s distracting them.”

During trial runs, former champ Lewis Hamilton crashed just yards from the site of the billboard. The hubbub didn’t stop Jessiqa from having a good time though, she spent the weekend partying on a luxury yacht with the various F1 teams.  “All the attention is overwhelming,” she said, “I find it really funny. Obviously it’s very flattering that I’m distracting the drivers so much, but I’d feel terrible if someone got hurt. They’re all very handsome men and are very popular with the girls. There is one driver who I think is a cut above the rest but I’m keeping it secret.”

I can’t imagine what was so distracting…

OK, I’ll Pay Attention for a Minute…

Remember when Max Mosely, the president of F1 got busted after having sex orgies with hookers where he dressed up as a Nazi? Well that was very embarrassing for F1 and so they have come up with something positive to counter.

Meet Gemma Garrett, the current Ms. Great Britain who was recently been named to be the face of the British Grand Prix. I still don’t care whatsoever about racing, but much like the Funny Cars circuit found, adding a hot chick gets people to pay attention. Also, get your Fandango fingers ready, she’s due to have a movie come out later this year co-starring noted thespian Dolph Lundgren entitled Direct Contact.

I Simply Cannot Compete With This

With one of the more incredible and wonderful headlines I’ve ever seen, I present you this story about Formula One President Max “British Charleton Heston” Mosely.

I can’t invent stories this good. 5 hookers? Check. Sex orgy? You got it. Nazi sex games? I don’t even know what that entails, but check. Son of the founder of the British Fascist Party? Big check.

Seriously. This is a story that you have to read.

“They’ll have to pry my hookers out of my cold, dead hands.”
